Last years blog post…but a great reminder for tonight! 😀
Tonight, a lot of creatureswill visit your door. Be open minded.
The child who is grabbing more than one piece of candy might have poor fine motor skills. The child who takes forever to pick out one piece of candy might have motor planning issues. The child who does not say “trick or treat” or “thank you” might be painfully shy, non-verbal, or selectively mute…. If you cannot understand their words, they may struggle with developmental apraxia of speech. The child who looks disappointed when he sees your bowl might have a life-threatening allergy. The child who isn’t wearing a costume at all might have SPD or autism.
Know that they are thankful in their hearts and minds.
Be kind, be patient, smile, pretend you understand. It’s everyone’sHalloween.
Make a parent feel good by making a big deal of their special child
